Success With Us!

I'm forever grateful for the amazing chance to be able to show my collection during New York Fashion Week to connect with press and other influential industry! Thank you to the Nolcha team for believing in me and introducing me to celebrities to dress for the shows as well as supporting my business needs as I launch in USA

- Yvette Hass

Working with Nolcha was a great experience. Launching my collection, there was so much to take care of and they truly made it easier. Their team was very professional and guided me through the whole process. If it wasn’t for Nolcha, I would have not been able to launch my first collection. You guys are amazing!

- Danilo Gabrielli

The biggest satisfaction was to have launched in one of the most important fashion scenes of the world and it had not been possible without Nolcha’s support. Congratulations to the Nolcha team and to the professionalism of the whole production.‐‐
